On the left, the petals are separate (linked) objects.
On the right, they're joined into one object - but the gradient type changed.

How to keep the same gradient type when I join the petals together into a single object?

my node setup

(Edited using the provided file)

To keep the gradient when joining the petals, you can use UV coordinates.
Then just project the UV map from top and join.

(To get the same UV map, just select the petal and UV > Project from view)

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the reply. But I'm not getting the similar result to my first setup. You solution is similar to the picture below. (see how the gradient align on each object) --- Screenshot --- Source file $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Well, you're using Z coordinates to drive the gradient. I suggested a UV map :). $\endgroup$ Nov 8, 2020 at 7:11
  • $\begingroup$ Well, I already tried that. but treating them as one single object is not getting the result I want. (see my annotation in screenshot above) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hey :). Could you please add an image of your desired final result? Maybe I misunderstood :). $\endgroup$ Nov 8, 2020 at 7:24
